**About this book :- **
**Introduction to Solid State Physics (8E) **
** Charles Kittel **.

This book is the eighth edition of an elementary text on solid state condensed matter physics for seniors and beginning graduate students of the physical sciences, chemistry, and engineering. In the years since the first edition was published the field has developed vigorously, and there are notable applications. The challenge to the author has been to treat significant new areas while maintaining the introductory level of the text. It would be a pity to present such a physical, tactile field as an exercise in formalism.

**About Author :- **
The author ** Charles Kittel ** did his undergraduate work in physics at M.I.T and at the Cavendish Laboratory of Cambridge University. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin. He worked in the solid state group at Bell Laboratories, along with Bardeen and Shockley, leaving to start the theoretical solid state physics group at Berkeley in 1951. His research has been largely in magnetism and in semiconductors. In magnetism he developed the theories of ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic resonance and the theory of single ferromagnetic domains, and extended the Bloch theory of magnons. In semiconductor physics he participated in the first cyclotron and plasma resonance experiments and extended the results to the theory of impurity states and to electron-hole drops.

He has been awarded three Guggenheim fellowships, the Oliver Buckley Prize for Solid State Physics, and, for contributions to teaching, the Oersted Medal of the American Association of Physics Teachers. He is a member of the National Academy of Science and of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
